I just recently moved back to Durham after a 5 year hiatus in Hartford, CT and then Charlotte, NC. I'm very excited about being back in the area and looking forward to getting out and enjoying everything the Triangle has to offer. I grew up just outside of Charlotte and have been a diehard Duke fan since birth. I was fortunate enough to graduate from Duke in 2008 and credit my parents for teaching me the work ethic and determination that continues to drive my success today. I have been committed to my career as an Actuary since I graduated and have now recently reached a point where my career takes up a normal amount of my time and should be that way for the foreseeable future. I joined Match as I have found the prospect of meeting the right person at a bar or club to be frustrating, boarding on impossible and am really just looking for someone with similar interests that I can enjoy the rest of life with.
I am an avid subscriber of the "work hard, play hard" mentality and am always looking for new ways to live life to the fullest. In my free time I enjoy playing basketball, tennis, mountain biking, running and skiing (I grew up water skiing but now do more snow skiing, but am always in for either) and when I am not doing one of those I love spending time with friends whether it is a casual outdoor outing/cookout, happy hour, catching a game at the bar or just a casual conversation. I am always looking for an opportunity to watch any of my favorite sports teams in person (Blue Devils, Braves and Panthers) or enjoy a great local festival or concert. I consider myself to be wittingly funny and believe that the only way to survive this game of life is to be willing to step back and laugh from time to time. I am also a very laid back, optimistic person who can pretty much enjoy anything as long as I am in good company. As part of my commitment to a healthy active lifestyle I've gotten into cooking more, but find it much more entertaining to just make it up as I go instead of trying to find recipes. I'm definitely a foodie and love trying new cuisines. I am very open so if you are interested in knowing more about me, don't hesitate to ask.
